Meal Planning Monday

I realize I missed Ice Cream Sunday yesterday, but I was out of town all weekend and didn't get back until nine last night, at which point I dropped into bed and was asleep before my head hit the pillow, I swear. And then my daughter decided to wake up from her nap as soon as I fell asleep for mine this afternoon. It is all just as awesome as it sounds!

Also, we have under two weeks to pack and get ready to move into the new house, so you get quick and easy meals yet again this week!

Monday - Prosciutto Pasta , Salad

This is one of our favorite quick, easy meals, but it would be even more quick if we didn't have to travel to a grocery store across town to get the prosciutto. Still, it's worth it, and the leftovers are pretty good too!

Tuesday - Buffalo Chicken Joes , Cole Slaw , Potato Chips

I made these just as Cassie described, but minus the celery because I'm tired of buying a bunch for just one stalk and then forgetting to use the rest and having to throw almost the whole thing away. However, I would halve the sauce because ours were actually too sloppy. Still, these were delicious, and we enjoyed the leftovers too!

This cole slaw recipe is our favorite, and so, so much better than store bought. I cut everything nice and chunky, just the way Aaron likes it, and so I've ruined him for any other cole slaw.

Wednesday - Green Eggs and Ham

Brinner (breakfast for dinner) is always a winner of a quick weeknight meal. For green eggs and ham, I scramble eggs as usual, adding some pesto at the end of cooking. Then I shave over some parmesan cheese and serve with prosciutto and toasted, buttered sourdough on the side.

Thursday - Chicken Sausage, Cole Slaw, Grape Tomato Salad

We just bought some delicious, inexpensive chicken sausages at Trader Joe's and boy, are they tasty. This is also an easy way to use up the leftover cole slaw from Tuesday, and it's even better after it has set up for a couple of days.

Friday - Chips with Pico de Gallo and Guacamole , Margaritas

I'm going to need this come Friday, so we're having happy hour for dinner. There's not much better than that!

No weekend meals this week. I'm going to be up to my elbows in boxes, so we're having pizza and take out Chinese food.

  1. The green eggs and ham sound absolutely AMAZING. Your description made my mouth water. I just can't get enough eggs lately. I'm definitely going to try something like this!
